This information was originally distributed via HUD Exchange is redistributing the information for awareness.

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Registration forms are now available in e-snaps with a submission deadline of 5:00 PM EST on March 2, 2023.

The CoC Program Registration requirements for the following types of registrations are located on HUD’s website:

Notice CPD 22-02 provides Collaborative Applicants, including Indian Tribes and Tribally Designed Housing Entities (TDHEs), with the information necessary to register a CoC in preparation for the annual FY CoC Program Competition and to select CoC geographic areas, including Tribal lands and Reservations.

Please note, this process is for CoC designated Collaborative Applicants, including Tribes and TDHEs that are registering as new CoCs, only.

Collaborative Applicants who meet one or more of the following criteria must access the FY 2023 CoC Program Registration forms in e-snaps.

  • Newly formed CoCs must submit the registration by the submission date to have access to the FY 2023 CoC Consolidated Application including the CoC Application, the CoC Priority Listing, and project applications.
  • Changes from the FY 2022 CoC Program Competition. CoC designated Collaborative Applicants that have changes from the FY 2022 CoC Program Competition (e.g., change in Collaborative Applicant, CoCs merged, claiming American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) areas, change in geographic codes) must complete the registration forms to gain access to the FY 2023 CoC Consolidated Application when the CoC Program Competition opens later this year.
  • Applying or re-applying for Unified Funding Agency (UFA) Designation. UFA designations must be requested annually. All Collaborative Applicants with an existing FY 2022 UFA designation must complete the FY 2023 UFA application and attach the documentation as required in Notice CPD 22-01: Unified Funding Agency. If a Collaborative Applicant with an existing UFA designation does not complete the UFA Application forms with the FY 2023 CoC Program Registration, it will lose its UFA designation for FY 2023.
  • Applying for High Performing Community (HPC) Designation. Any Collaborative Applicant that intends to apply for HPC designation for the CoC must complete all forms and attach documentation as required in Notice CPD 22-03: Applying to be a High Performing Community.

If an existing CoC has no changes from the previous year’s CoC Program Competition and the Collaborative Applicant chooses not to complete the registration forms, HUD will move the previous year’s CoC Program Registration information forward with no changes (see Section I of the Notice CPD-22-02: CoC Program Registration Notice).

Please note that the CoC Program Registration Notice (CPD-22-02) requires that a Collaborative Applicant (other than an Indian Tribe or TDHE forming a CoC comprised of their own formula area) must include, as an attachment to their CoC registration submission in e-snaps, a tribal resolution from the applicable Indian Tribe authorizing the CoC to include the trust land or reservation in its area of operation. Indian Tribes and TDHEs forming a CoC are not required to obtain a tribal resolution to select their own trust land or reservation or to site a project on their own formula area.

The following resources to assist Collaborative Applicants with the Registration process will be accessible on the HUD Exchange CoC Program Competitions page.

  • The FY 2023 CoC Program Registration Detailed Instructions and Navigational Guide
  • The FY 2023 Geocode Report that includes the list of geographic areas along with their six-digit geographic code (geo code) for Metropolitan Cities, Urban Counties, and all other counties in the United States as well as American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) Tribal Areas with their ten-digit AIAN codes.
  • FY 2023 list of CoC Names and Numbers

Questions about the CoC Program Competition, including the Registration process, must be submitted to the appropriate email address, as follows:

  • for questions about the NOFO, competition, and applications.
  • for questions about e-snaps technical issues, including creating an individual user profile, lockouts and password resets, requesting access to a CoC’s or project applicant’s e-snaps account, navigating e-snaps, updating the Applicant Profile, identifying the funding opportunity, creating a project, and accessing the application on the Submissions screen.

Questions about policy and program implementation should continue to be submitted to the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. In Step 2 of the question submission process, select “CoC Program” from the “My question is related to” drop down list. Do not submit competition questions or questions about e-snaps to the CoC Program AAQ help desk or the e-snaps AAQ help desk.
